God and Contentment

“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?” Matthew 6:28-30

Why should we care about God making the lilies beautiful?

Does this verse give you any comfort at all? Why or Why not?


I claimed this verse in 1976 when I went to Argentina as a missionary. Our God is true to His Word. He cares for us in ways that constantly surprises. In all our days on this earth, in times of health, sickness, pain, sorrow and Joy God is there with arms open. God is amazing, loving, caring and supporting. Our bodies are designed to carry our souls, our souls are design to be with God. Jesus the Christ showed us how to live, gives us strength to live right in God’s eyes and pardons all our sins. Jesus has the power to pardon us for all our sins, we have the decision to accept the pardon by believing He can do it, will do it and has done it. Thank you Jesus.
